Proctologist: I have found that disorders of the anorectal area are best treated and followed by a proctologist. Your endoscopy was reassuring that there's no significant colorectal pathology. Anal fissure with anal spasm or very tight tone probably plays a role in flat stool formation. In my opinion a proctologist is better at treating such problems.
